2003 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Rwd 2dr Sports Coupe (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)

Review

After waiting over twenty years to buy my first Benz - finally getting one was an underwhelming exercise in futility. This is a TERRIBLE car, built like any other Pinto, Gremlin or Vega - HONESTLY. Bad build quality, rattles, squeaks, LOUD when driving it, alignment that can't be fixed, a transmission that can't be diagnosed, and a Corporate Office that refuses to deal with customers on ANY level whatsoever. I was told their Director of Customer Assistance does NOT read, or answer his mail, nor will he contact any customers. THIS is Mercedes Benz? THINK TWICE IF YOU ARE IN THE MARKET FOR A BENZ.....

Favorite Features

Supercharged Engine, that displays its prowess when IT wants to, not when you want it to. Sometimes a sugar rush of power - other times, nothing...

Suggested Improvements

Corporate Customer Assistance Department should ACTUALLY ASSIST THEIR CUSTOMERS. The transmission on this car is garbage. Bad build quality - should not have RATTLES AND SQUEAKS at 2500 - 3000 miles. I've bought and owned 13 cars over 28 years - THIS is the worst.
